She explains that she adds potential energy to the spring when she pushes it down, energy that is bound up in the coils. When she releases the spring, the potential energy becomes energy of motion.

Students learn that a net is the shape formed by "unfolding" a

type of 3-dimensional figure can be made from a given net (note that a cylinder has 2 circular bases, a pyramid has triangular faces, a cone
has 1 circular base, and a prism has rectangular faces). Students are
also asked to determine if a given net can be used to make

This video clip explalins how a fraction that has a polynomial in the numerator and/or in the denominator is a rational function. An excluded value in the function is any value of the variable that would make the denominator equal to zero. To find the domain, list all the values of the variable that, when substituted, would result in a zero in the denominator. (1:37)
